So, after spending several weeks flitting from project to project (*ooh, shiny new story!* *ooh, diamond-in-the-rough old story!* *eek, getting away from me story-that-needs-complete-overhaul!*), I have a plan!
(Yes, I love making plans.)
Kai’s book (aka Riven) won the Me-first! Story Contest. The grand prize is that I write 500 words a day. Easy-peasy, right? I can do 500 measly little words. I got back into it yesterday with 261 words, and already all this cool stuff came out that I hadn’t expected. You would think I’d have learned by now to let RB just get on with working on the first draft instead of insisting on having all the worldbuilding and plot answers beforehand.
There will also be Query Writing. My SOP for writing queries is write iteration after iteration, coming at the query from all different angles, until it all clicks together.
This plan should tide me over until the sadly-mangled ms. of Quartz lands in my Inbox.
